Napol on Hannibalce qu ils auraient fait du digital
Big Data, showrooming, uberisation... L'humanité connaît, de nos jours, une de ses périodes les plus intenses en matière de créativité lexicale. Tous les mois, toutes les semaines pour ceux qui y prêtent attention, des termes étranges apparaissent pour illustrer les ruptures apportées par la révolution digitale. Et, il faut bien l’admettre, on a beau apprendre consciencieusement ces nouveaux barbarismes, potasser les exemples à suivre, guetter la sortie des nouvelles technologies et observer les changements à l’oeuvre sous nos yeux, globalement, on n’y comprend plus rien... Alors, plutôt que de réchauffer, comme tous les autres, les bonnes pratiques issues des champions américains – celles-là mêmes qu’on nous propose d’adopter et qui, une fois copiées seront déjà dépassées par une autre –, plutôt que de crier au génie ou hurler de terreur à chaque fois qu’Apple, Google ou Amazon sort un nouveau service, Laurent Moisson a choisi d’analyser les changements de notre temps sous l’angle saugrenu de l’Histoire. Point trop de cas pratiques et d’exemples qui se périment, cet ouvrage est là pour rappeler comment, jadis, de grands hommes ou de grandes civilisations ont réagi fasse aux ruptures de leur temps. Car, au bout du compte, l’équilibre économique de nos nations sera-t-il autant bouleversé à l’issue de l’ère numérique qu’après la découverte de l’Amérique, l’invention du métier à tisser, du moteur à explosion, du chemin de fer ou de l’électricité ? Ces nouveaux conquérants implacables que sont les géants du Web ou du digital (Google, Facebook, Apple, Samsung...) sont-ils plus terribles que les hordes venues des steppes déferlant sur les vieux royaumes sédentaires engourdis par des règles rigides et séculaires ? Peut-être, peut-être pas. En tout cas, les leçons fournies par nos anciens sont souvent bien plus éclairantes que le flot continu d’anglicismes qui nous submerge jour après jour. L’auteur vous invite à les méditer pour comprendre, et agir.
"Superbosses is the rare business book that is chock full of new, useful, and often unexpected ideas. After you read Finkelstein's well-crafted gem, you will never go about leading, evaluating, and developing talent in quite the same way.”—Robert Sutton, author of Scaling Up Excellence and The No Asshole Rule “Maybe you’re a decent boss. But are you a superboss? That’s the question you’ll be asking yourself after reading Sydney Finkelstein’s fascinating book. By revealing the secrets of superbosses from finance to fashion and from cooking to comic books, Finkelstein offers a smart, actionable playbook for anyone trying to become a better leader.”—Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive A fascinating exploration of the world’s most effective bosses—and how they motivate, inspire, and enable others to advance their companies and shape entire industries, by the author of How Smart Executives Fail. A must-read for anyone interested in leadership and building an enduring pipeline of talent. What do football coach Bill Walsh, restauranteur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technology CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses. After ten years of research and more than two hundred interviews, Finkelstein—an acclaimed professor at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, speaker, and executive coach and consultant—discovered that superbosses exist in nearly every industry. If you study the top fifty leaders in any field, as many as one-third will have once worked for a superboss. While superbosses differ in their personal styles, they all focus on identifying promising newcomers, inspiring their best work, and launching them into highly successful careers—while also expanding their own networks and building stronger companies. Among the practices that distinguish superbosses: They Create Master-Apprentice Relationships. Superbosses customize their coaching to what each protégé really needs, and also are constant founts of practical wisdom. Advertising legend Jay Chiat not only worked closely with each of his employees but would sometimes extend their discussions into the night. They Rely on the Cohort Effect. Superbosses strongly encourage collegiality even as they simultaneously drive internal competition. At Lorne Michaels’s Saturday Night Live, writers and performers are judged by how much of their material actually gets on the air, but they can’t get anything on the air without the support of their coworkers. They Say Good-Bye on Good Terms. Nobody likes it when great employees quit, but superbosses don’t respond with anger or resentment. They know that former direct reports can become highly valuable members of their network, especially as they rise to major new roles elsewhere. Julian Robertson, the billionaire hedge fund manager, continued to work with and invest in his former employees who started their own funds. By sharing the fascinating stories of superbosses and their protégés, Finkelstein explores a phenomenon that never had a name before. And he shows how each of us can emulate the best tactics of superbosses to create our own powerful networks of extraordinary talent. From the Hardcover edition.
Design to Grow
Expert advice from Coca-Cola’s Vice President of Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Learn how the world’s largest beverage brand uses design to grow its business by combining the advantages of a large-scale company with the agility of a nimble startup. Every company needs both scale and agility to win. From a fledging startup in Nepal, to a century-old multinational in New York, scale and agility are two qualities that are essential to every company’s success. Start-ups understand agility. They know just when to pivot to stay alive. But what they haven’t mastered yet is how to stabilize their business model so they can move to the next stage and become full-fledged companies. And well-established companies know scale. They are successful because they know how to leverage size with a high degree of effectiveness and efficiency. But what worries them most is staying competitive in a world of increasing uncertainty and change, complicated by upstarts searching for ways to disrupt the industry. So what is the key to creating the kind of scale and agility necessary to stay competitive in this day and age? The answer is design. In Design to Grow, a Coca-Cola senior executive shares both the successes and failures of one of the world’s largest companies as it learns to use design to be both agile and big. In this rare and unprecedented behind-the-scenes look, David Butler and senior Fast Company editor, Linda Tischler, use plain language and easy-to-understand case studies to show how this works at Coca-Cola—and how other companies can use the same approach to grow their business. This book is a must-read for managers inside large corporations as well as entrepreneurs just getting started.
